56975 fragments of a journey.

At each grade level crossing, we pass a semaphore, our motion smearing the sounds of the dinging bells, like a foley cue from an old spy film. It begins high on the musical scale and then smoothly sweeps downward, simultaneously rising and falling in loudness, a small seance to summon the spirit of Christian Doppler …

“The conviction of its substantial, tangible reality is now so overwhelming that later, when I wake up, I have the impression that I have just left a state of true perception, and everything I see after opening my eyes seems hazy and unreal.”

56953 excursus.

Our tireless habit of trawling like magpies leaves us a trove of disconnected fragments of unclear usefulness. Combined with the feverish symptoms of our imagination’s labors, they elicit continents of bleak emptiness, dark harbors, burst tensions, moments of quiet violence, and even love. We find solace in these digressions.

56946 islands nula http://nula.cc/

56946 islands.

The city of Wrocław, formerly Breslau, lies on both sides of the river Odra, and spans some eleven islands. After the war, its populace was driven out and replaced, the newcomers also having been forced from their previous abodes. This has left this richly layered city fragmented, but not broken.

56939 father of apples.

With the sound of trickling water all around and the late summer wind in the trees, many parts of Almaty enjoy an almost pastoral ambience, surprising for a rectilinear city of a million and a half people. …

56914 variations.

A sodden crow audibly slapped its wings together as it struggled for advantage over gravity, weighed down as it was by rain-soaked feathers. Its plight inspired my sympathy, and I felt relief when it gained perch high up on a rain gutter.

The trams at Karlovo náměstí resound differently from those at Alexanderplatz; they are perhaps a bit sadder, more moaning than singing. Once I heard the cries of a wounded dog in the song of those rails. …

In this filecast, I apply the technical concepts of stereograpy to a selection of found monoptical motion picture fragments, and construct a semi-imaginary space from them, partly reconstituting the actual space in which they were recorded. …

56880 æther.

The luminiferous æther was thought for centuries to be the pervasive medium via which light propagated throughout the universe. Its existence came into doubt only in the 19th century, when careful experiments failed to measure any of its predicted effects.

56859 solar cycle.

“Until recently it was thought that there were 28 cycles in the 309 years between 1699 and 2008, giving an average length of 11.04 years, but recent research has showed that the longest of these (1784–1799) seems actually to have been two cycles, so that the average length is only around 10.66 years.”

“Consider the subtleness of the sea; how its most dreaded creatures glide under water, unapparent for the most part, and treacherously hidden beneath … Consider all this; and then turn to this green, gentle, and most docile earth; consider them both, the sea and the land; and do you not find a strange analogy to something in yourself?”

56831 ocean of steel.

Beneath us in the city, where stunted columns cradle a blackened sky, lies a strange forest of bird calls, an inferno of clanking struts and pistons, sucking and exhaling the taint of ancient dust and smoke with the feverish march of clockwork, a surging ocean of steel.
